Ready for world domination Page 6

SPEEDWAY

Tasman set for $400m injection Andrew Board The Nelson-Tasman district is poised for an investment injection unlike anything it has ever seen and on a scale that will see the region’s growth skyrocket, says a local expert. By the middle of 2013 local iwi should start to see Treaty of Waitangi settlements from the Government transferred to it, to the tune of an estimated $300400 million. Nelson City Council Maori liaison officer Geoff Mullen says most of that money will be invested in the top of the south and will see growth in the region on a scale never seen before. It comes at a time when Nelson businesses are already experiencing growth with the region’s Economic Development Agency chief executive Bill Findlater saying Nelson is in for a “bloody exciting” future on the back of the iwi investment and Nelson’s current business expertise, especially in primary production,

like growing and producing food. Local iwi and businesses are already engaging in how that money will be invested with a conference to be held in just over a week at Nelson’s Rutherford Hotel. Geoff says the investment will most likely be in horticulture, aquaculture, viticulture and forestry, areas Nelson already does really well in. He says local iwi are unlikely to “blow” their settlement like Taranaki iwi Ngati Tama did earlier this year, investing their entire settlement into a failed IT company. “There are two reasons that is very unlikely to happen here, one iwi have big brother down the road in Ngai Tahu who has been there and done that and they are very willing to lend their help and expertise. Secondly, and they’ll hate me saying this, but Maori are very conservative SEE PAGE 2

History in a postcard Some locally photographed postcards are becoming so rare that historians are now willing to pay hundreds of dollars for them – so don’t tell them you’ve just taken an album to the refuse centre. A large group of postcard collectors and historians from around New Zealand visited Club Waimea for the NZ Postcard Society’s annual convention where stories were uncovered through the text on the back of the cards while others were more interested in adding to their particular collection. One of those postcard collectors looking to add to his collection was Richmond’s Rob Packer. Rob has gathered more than 2000 postcards during the past 30 years – most of those showcasing photos that have otherwise been lost all together. “I was in an antique shop one day and I bought an old postcard, took it home and I thought it was quite interesting. I’ve always liked Nelson history but this particular passion began when I picked up that card.” Once his collection grew, Rob made contact with others around the country. “Before you knew it, there was a society starting up.” Rob manages Richmond Antiques and Curios and says he collects other bits and pieces that revolve around the region. He says his collection won’t ever stop and that he is always seekRob Packer with a postcard that shows the 1919 Peace Parade on ing historic postcards from the region.

This isn’t a takeover or a ‘you’ll do it my way now’, it’s actually ‘let’s work in partnership and make a better region’.” The conference for local iwi and businesses is to be held on October 18 and 19 at the Rutherford Hotel.

a complete inconvenience.” Dean believes there is too much “get off the road” attitude from motorists and noted that drivers are more lenient towards cyclists and pedestrians in Europe. “They have a rule where the little has the right of way. I don’t think we’re going to get that here but there needs to be a swing of attitude that we’re all just trying to get from ‘A to be B’ and some people are exercising.” And the problems don’t just stop with cyclists either. Dean believes this ongoing issue is also affecting road workers, pedestrians, horse riders, roadside lawn mowers and anyone actively using the side of the road. “I’m not pointing at car drivers or truck drivers, we’re all one species.”

SBL still seek second stop

The club captain of the Tasman Wheelers says motorists’ attitudes are to blame for near misses, not infrastructure. Dean Fulton shared his views on the current cycle debate, following last week’s article in the Waimea Weekly where engineer and former police officer Peter Todd raised concerns around the amount of near misses on the Brightwater Bridge. Peter says they are due to cyclists not using the safety lanes provided, despite calls for a similar lane on the Appleby Bridge. Dean, who lives in Hope and commutes to Mapua for work on his bike each weekday, says the amount of near

misses continues to grow and it won’t be long before a cyclist is killed on the road. But that problem is not due to narrow bridges or the inability to use cycle lanes, it is the fact everyone using the road is trying to get to their destination as fast as they can, Dean explains. He agreed that the Brightwater Bridge was wide enough to cycle on and says cyclists don’t use cycle lanes because they are littered with broken bottles and debris. “It comes down to the fact that people just aren’t sharing the road anymore,” says Dean. “Roads were designed to get people from ‘A to B’ safely and now people are using them to get from ‘A to be B’ as quickly as possible and anything that gets in the way is just

SBL remain certain that an extra loop in Richmond is just a short term solution to blocking up traffic in Sundial Square and believe the council is not coming to the party to accommodate them. Police warned the bus company that its drivers would receive parking infringements for what was essentially double parking in Sundial Square. Because there is only one stop on that end of Croucher St, which Tasman District Council created after a request from SBL, buses were blocking off traffic on the one way, one lane street if there was an overlap in scheduling. The solution requires the first bus to leave Sundial Square, going down McGlashen Ave and McIndoe Pl, parking on Queen St and then reentering Sundial Square for a second time. SBL spokesperson Tom Heaphy says while the extra loop is “working” it is “less than ideal” and

is far from permanent. “We’re finding TDC’s indecisions are really dragging us along and leading to a bit of continued disruption to a service that is otherwise running really well,” he says. Patronage figures had risen above expectations since Nelson City Council and SBL began the NBus service. Tom says the best case scenario is turning the two car parks behind the current bus stop into a second stop. “It seems pretty simple from our point of view but apparently not from TDC’s.” But TDC transportation manager Gary Clark says there have been no complaints since the extra loop was put in place. Gary did acknowledge that it was just a temporary solution. However, neither party is yet to agree on what that permanent solution will be, and talks are still on going. So it appears the bus is not the only one going round in circles.

Have a clean, hygienic and pest free summer It’s timely for business and homeowners to consider how best to set up work and the home environment for a clean, hygienic and pest free summer this spring. Carpet Cleaning - Following the winter carpets are generally at their worst with soiling, stains and ingrained dirt and odour. In this state they’re less hygienic and a potential harbourage for mites, fleas and potentially harmful bacteria and viruses and pose a hazard to asthma sufferers and immune compromised people. Have your carpets cleaned for health and to prolong your carpets life - not just looks alone. The only way to clean carpet for health is to use the hot water extraction method. This method involves truck-mounted machines that heat the water to a level that will kill bacteria and virus, flushing carpet from the tip to deep down on the fibre base. Enviro only uses this hot water extraction method combined with cleaning solutions that have the international CRI Gold Seal of Approval and are biodegradable. Failing to remove ingrained soiling severely reduces the life of a carpet and the aesthetic appearance drops off rapidly leaving the carpet looking old, dirty and worn with tracking marks in high foot traffic areas. It’s really important to remove this ingrained soil from low down in the carpet fibres to prevent this from worsening and becoming permanent. We often hear from clients that the carpet looked really good for the first three or so years and rapidly deteriorated after this. This is due to the abrasive action of

the fine sand like soil permanently damaging the carpet fibres. Enviro’s technicians are IICRC certified in carpet cleaning, stain removal, mould remediation, odour control, flood and fire restoration. Pest Control - Springtime is the most effective pre-emptive time for pest control management for flies, fleas, ants and spiders. As the ambient temperatures increase new life cycles start and insect pests become more active and visible. What seemed a minor infestation over the cooler months may turn into a full scale nuisance or health risk. Early preventative spraying for spiders and flies is the most effective means of preventing a problem developing later in the season. Our Enviro operators are approved handlers and Urban Pest Management certified to ensure that they have the appropriate training and experience in product selection, safe handling, the required understanding of entomology and the correct tools, products and application methods required to keep homes, businesses, pets and people safe. In order to ensure the safety of you and your family or employees and compliance with regulations always ensure your technician has EPA approval and holds an Approved Handler Certificate. If you would like to discuss your carpet cleaning, pest control requirements or any of our other services please call us on 548 2831 or 0800 744 272 for 24/7 response. Business Update. Adv.

Urgent work to fix erosion

Urgent work has begun to correct erosion at the Reservoir Creek near Salisbury Rd before it causes physical damage. The affects of last December’s flooding could have resulted in loss of land, now that the stream had changed its course. The stream was beginning to undercut private and public property, and one of the walking tracks near the stream has been closed until all rock work and tree repairs are complete. The work includes bank protection and grade control through the two sides. “There’s one public retaining wall Reservoir Creek. which we are concerned about. It hasn’t got too bad but the progress suggests that it potentially could so they want to get in now,” says TDC communications manager Chris Choat. Contractors will assess the rest of the creek throughout the process to see if other areas are in need or urgent attention. There are two hot spots at the Reservoir Creek that are currently being worked on.

Historic turtles on the move Phillip Rollo Brightwater School is relocating two concrete turtles as the construction of the town’s iconic water wheel nears. The turtles are situated in the exact garden at the front of the school where the replica water wheel will be built. It is unsure how long the two turtles have been at the school. However, Brian Batchelor, who was school principal from 1962 to 1986, believes they would have been there for at least 40 years. The turtles were built as prototypes to similar turtles at the Lions Playground at Tahunanui Beach. They were donated to the school and then

painted by students. Brian says children used to hug and sit on the turtles when they were first put in place. “You’d always find little ones draped around their necks. Current principal Gerald Baldwin says it was important to ensure the turtles were kept in the school grounds because of their historic value to the school. “It’d be nice to see kids enjoy their company,” says Gerald. “I know people who are now in their 40s who remember playing with the turtles so we’ll be very careful to make sure we move them with the care that they deserve.” The first working bee to clear vegetation in the garden was held on the weekend. The water wheel has been the school’s logo for a number of years.

Just a thought... Anne Michelle, Sharon Martin, Zoe, Genie and Tyler Bradley with Jackie Tribe at Club Waimea.

Club Waimea to host girls expo

Club Waimea is set to a host the Girls’ Day Expo this weekend, showcasing local business’ products targeted specifically at women. The Girls’ Day Expo has been running for the past three years. However, it is now under new management and has a new venue, after previously being held at the Rutherford Hotel. Organiser Jackie Tribe says she bought the Girls’ Day Expo this year and has since upgraded it. Jackie says the best way to describe the event is a “boutique expo for women of all ages” that supports locals businesses. There is already 44 trade stalls signed up for the event. The Girls’ Day Expo will be held this Sunday at Club Waimea from 10am until 5pm. Door sales to this event will be $6, with $1 from every ticket going to the Autism Society Nelson.

Call in and see him in the new and upgraded showroom and workshop at 2 Gladstone Road, Richmond. Should I buy before I sell? In the present real estate market there are more purchasers than properties for sale, which often results in cash purchasers viewing properties and multiple offers being received. In this type of market purchasers need to be aware that if they are purchasing a new property subject to their present property selling – they should be prepared to miss out if a subsequent cash offer is received. This causes severe disappointment for vendors wanting to purchase a property before they sell their existing home. One of the biggest hurdles we have to overcome in Real Estate is the vendor’s price expectation. “I am in no hurry to sell – I can wait for the market to meet my price” is a common train of thought but this can actually be a deterrent in the sales process. The property receives maximum viewing when it first hits the market and if the property is not priced at a level that buyers recognise as fair, they will move on and purchase elsewhere. If the property is clearly overpriced i.e. on the market as opposed to in the market – it may well be too late. In Real Estate, three prices need to be taken into consideration – the seller’s price, the real estate salesperson’s price and the buyer’s price. Guess who gets it right every time? Richmond Flooring First – They do Curtains too Richmond Flooring First have one of the best selections of top quality carpet and flooring products, but did you know they also have a comprehensive selection of top quality curtain fabrics and blinds from renowned brands including Luxaflex, Ken Bimler, Maurice Kain, James Dunlop and fabrics to match the Resene colour range?

There are plenty of Coca Cola goodies hidden away to give out on fireworks night and plans are already under way for your Christmas party. This season the club has also made

changes to ensure that every tummy also leaves fully satisfied with new food vendors trading inside the arena, providing such delights as baked potatoes, nachos and fresh coffees. You can still enjoy a traditional hotdog and chips or a selection of hot foods from the McCall shop as well as cold drinks, ice cream and confectionery. We have had to make a slight increase to gate prices but, in an effort to ensure families do not have to miss their night out, these have been made to members and pensioner prices which have increased to $10.

Cycle fest begins The Konica Minolta Nelson Cycle hit the ground round with two of its key events being staged on the event’s first weekend. The festival began in the Moutere Hills for round six of the Benchmark Series with two Nelson riders ending Saturday with the leader’s jersey. The men’s race got under way at 11am from the Lower Moutere School, which was the base for this particular event. A break was firmly established towards the end of the first lap of the race with most of the teams represented in it, including a strong team from Cycling Otago. The Tasman Wheelers were forced to chase for most of the race to protect the general classification hopes of team leader Chris Nicholson. The third time the race headed down the Motueka Valley Highway the main field had nearly caught the break away group but failed to maintain the momentum with the race splitting up in the closing kilometres as a result of the trying conditions. Brad Evans won a close fought sprint finish from Brad Tuhi of the Homestyle Test Team with Darcy Ellerm-Norton of Benchmark Homes Cycling Team third. Chris has moved into the leader’s jersey with Brad, who races for Cycling Otago, picking up the Under-23

jersey and Mark Spessot of Cycle World taking the master’s jersey. The women’s race set off 20 minutes after the men and was slow to get started. Some aggressive riding from Karen Fulton over the Waiwheros managed to form a break of four. Eloise Fry, who was a last minute ring in for the Otago team, initially tried to close the gap but the group managed to stay away. On the final lap Reta Trotman of Cycling Otago attacked several times over the Waiwheros dropping Karen. There was a close sprint for the finish with Reta just beating Benchmark Homes duo of Sharlotte Lucas and Hayley Mercer. Karen finished fourth and still retains the leader’s jersey. The second key event of the Nelson Cycle Festival was one of its more unique races with cyclists rounding the Nelson Cathedral for the Nelson City Criterium. Weather conditions were a vast improvement from Saturday and the sunshine and the special course drew a good group of spectators throughout the afternoon. A number of cyclists followed up from the Benchmark Series and it was Ian Smallman that took first place in the men’s A grade race followed by Kieran Hambrook and Brad Tuhi.

Twin champions

Josh Coppins may have just retired but his motocross riding legacy continues to flourish amongst Nelson’s latest crop of talent. Waimea West twins Luca and Nico Palmer-Donaldson have taken home silverware in their second ever national mini motocross championship with Nico coming first in 6-8 year old 55cc class and Luca finishing second place in the 7-8 year old 66cc class. Each class was run over five different races with points accumulated after each one. Nico was miles ahead at the end of the final day while Luca was amongst a bunch of top performers. Nico was pretty happy with his first placing. “Yeah it’s awesome,” he

says. The boys’ father Shane got them both into racing in 2011 and Luca and Nico have since competed locally on a regular basis and hope to race professionally overseas in the future. They will be competing in the same grade together next year. The twins would like to thank key sponsors Jason Arnfield of Nelson Motorcycle Centre, Fresh Choice Richmond, Hydrolink and Donaldson Landscape and Earthwork. Shane is looking for further sponsorship for the twins, to help fund trips to the North Island and potentially to Australia next year. If you are interested, please contact Shane on 027 628 1646.

However, the men’s over 50s were forced to take the seven minute time penalty that goes with the exemption.

Athletics Nelson completed its best ever finish at the New Zealand Road Relay Championship but if it wasn’t for a heartbreaking injury on the final leg of the Men’s Over 50 race, the club could have been celebrating an overall first placing. Athletics Nelson finished second overall on points, behind eventual winners Wellington Scottish. The Nelson teams came from behind in both the men’s masters 40-49 and over 60 grades to take the club’s two gold medals on the Upper Moutere course. The masters 40-49’s hopes were left Phil Costley, who has 31 national titles to his name. Phil snuck up to his competitor in the final 200m to win by just three seconds, despite having two minutes and 40 seconds to catch up on the clock when he was tagged in at the last relay exchange. The relay team also featured John Kennedy, Ian Thomas, Jon Linyard, Stu Cottam, Graeme Taylor, Neil Whittaker and Peter Versey. But the men’s 40-49 team were not the only locals to leave it late with the first ever Athletics Nelson men’s over 60 relay also waiting until the final leg to push in front. Race organiser Ian Morrison was one minute and half behind before he was tagged in but managed to create a similar margin on his opposition from Wellington Scottish as the team finished the 39.49km course in two hours 21 minutes and 11 seconds. The men’s over 60 Jon Linyard tags in Stu Cottam during the Athletics New roster also included Chris Bolter, Zealand Road Relay Championship on Saturday.
